The Bengal Cricket Association on Sunday launched the COVID-19 vaccination campaign for its cricketers. The driving began on the 81st anniversary of the birth of its former president, Jagmohan Dalmia, who also headed the BCCI.
SAS has contacted Apollo and AMRI hospitals and hopes to inoculate 120 players and support staff in the 18-45 age group.
“It is a known fact that Dalmatia has always prioritized the well-being of cricketers. Therefore, we thought it was an appropriate way to honor him by starting the vaccination of Bengal players today, on his birthday.
“Many players from Bengal in different age groups started getting vaccinated today,” CAB President Avishek Dalmia said in a statement.
Earlier, the SAS had started vaccinating its arbitrators, secretaries, and observers over the age of 45.
Covishield breakthroughs are provided at Apollo hospitals, while Covaxin vaccines, like Covishield, are provided at AMRI hospitals.
